This garden, developed since 2009, surrounds an 18th-century house on a rocky knoll overlooking Wigtown Bay. It is profusely planted with a large variety of alpines, perennials and shrubs. Two themes are plants from SW China and Australasia e.g. meconopsis, arisaema, Asian primulas, eucryphia and leptospermum. Planting is informal and naturalistic and designed to encourage wildlife. And there is a productive vegetable garden, soft fruit cage and developing orchard. Visitors may also explore the wood and motte.
